External users or non-employees, including vendors, partners, customers, consultants, and contractors need access to digital resources/authoritative systems in few if any modern organizations. It can be challenging to perform a manual, tedious, and time-intensive process to create accounts in various systems they need to access and difficult to manage and monitor when given access to your systems and network. Because of their short engagements, organizations struggle to gain full visibility into access risk of over assignment of permissions or missed deprovisioning.
To efficiently manage external user identities, ISSQUARED®’s External Identity Access & Governance (EIAG) provides a simplified and secure platform that streamlines external user onboarding, and automates provisioning/deprovisioning ensuring efficient access governance controls.
It helps you improve your IT security posture by securely authorizing external users, ensuring the right level of granting access rights and entitlements across multiple directories and application target systems both on premises and in the cloud. Our External Identity Access & Governance (EIAG) solution provides a superior digital experience to your external identities, enabling self-registration, request based application access and their entitlements, password reset, and access revoke functionalities.
Engage internal custodians to manage external identities or external custodians, who are third-party associates to onboard their own managed users. Let your custodians manage external accounts and entitlement access throughout the lifecycle of their engagement.
Enable custom controls and policies to automate provisioning/deprovisioning of accounts and entitlements across multiple directories and target systems. Also allow end users to raise self-request provisioning/deprovisioning, which will further get approvals from custodians/data owners based on the way workflows defined.
Ensure your custodians have complete visibility of access provided to external identities and allow them to properly manage and remove access in a timely fashion. On the other hand, create policies to periodically perform access reviews and revoke access based on business needs.
Automate interactions with custom email alerts and notifications for all the events and have greater insight into the data using intuitive dashboards and real-time reporting.
